Re: Augment and Aspect

Mk 5.7 κραξας λεγει Assuming that the two verbs are describing the same speech, this is being marked as an aoristic h.p., even though, as we claim, the present is imperfective by definition. This is a nice example. Mk 5.22 πιπτει Here we have a classic case. With 'at his feet' I can only read this ...

Re: Augment and Aspect

The argument given by Kimmo, that there's a theoretical difference between tense and aspect here, may be true for event type, but not for discourse. Am I correct? I am not certain if I understand your question correctly, so in case I answer the wrong question, please try again. I think that histori...

Re: Augment and Aspect

Now I'm a little confused. Vendlerian achievements are telic. Rijksbaron's claim was that historical presents have telic verbs. Sorry for confusing you. I was not referring to Rijksbaron, but rather the fact that whenever you have a Vendlerian achievement and you put it in the imperfective, the eve...

Re: Augment and Aspect

χαιρε Κιμμω (b) the historical presents are semantically imperfective. They are pragmatically marked in that they occur in slots where the perfective aspect would be unmarked. The answer is 'b', of course. Thank you for the clarification. I agree. And as Greeks have been saying for 2000 years, the ...

Re: Augment and Aspect

Randall, Are you saying that (a) the historical presents are semantically perfective. They are morphologically marked in that the present stem codes the perfective aspect. or (b) the historical presents are semantically imperfective. They are pragmatically marked in that they occur in slots where th...

πνεῦμα ἁγιωσύνης

Is the expression πνεῦμα ἁγιωσύνης found elsewhere in extant ancient Greek literature besides Rom. 1:4?

Re: Songs in ancient Greek: Holy Holy Holy

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee, though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see, only thou art holy; there is none beside thee, perfect in power, in love and purity. 17 ἅγιος, ἅγιος, ἅγιος, 18 καίπερ τὸ σκότος σε κρύψαν 19 καίπερ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ἁμαρτωλῶν 20 τὴν σὴν δόξαν μὴ ἑωρα...

Re: Critique of My Paper on Matthew 4:10 and Philippians 3:3

How about Luke 2:37? Would you apply the same interpretation for the dative there?

καὶ αὐτὴ χήρα ἕως ἐτῶν ὀγδοήκοντα τεσσάρων, ἣ οὐκ ἀφίσατο τοῦ ἰεροῦ νηστείαις καὶ δεήσεσιν λατρεύουσα νύκτα καὶ ἡμέραν.

Did she worship fastings and requests or by fasting and making requests?

Re: 1 Tim 2:12 - should both infinitives apply to ANHR?

Years ago I read an article (I can't remember which one) that argued that when the verb for permit is followed by two infinitives the second infinitive often states the purpose of the first infinitive. As I remember the author gave the example of Matthew 8:21 to substantiate his claim. κύριε, ἐπίτρ...

Re: Syntactical categories and meaning

Being a lumper or a splitter need not be an either-or question. Some lumpers have produced great analyses showing how separate-looking categories have a lot in common. Some splitters have produced great analyses on important minute distinctions. Prototype theory and cognitive grammar allow one to ea...
